Penfolds Koonunga Hill Shiraz/Cabernet Iwc 87 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

Penfolds Koonunga Hill Shiraz Cabernet is very much a reflection of the Penfolds winemaking style and philosophy. Sourced from premium vineyards across South Australia, the wine is known for its full-flavoured style with excellent Shiraz and Cabernet fruit, firm yet well-rounded structure and balanced oak. Made as a traditional 'Australian blend', the Shiraz component provides fleshy fruit flavour while Cabernet provides a frame of fine grained tannins.

Nice enough Cab-Shiraz blend. Somewhat lighter in body, smooth tannins, medium red fruit and not overly complex. Good mid week sipper for the price.

Fresh and lively, this red is juicy with berry flavors that show a tinge of oatmeal. Finishes on a savory note. Drink now through 2014.
